PhotoSensitive Documentary

Janek Lowe has continued interviewing PhotoSensitive members and recording onsite launches for the upcoming short documentary. It captures the history of social change power of black and white photography. While the documentary is now in post-production, there are still more photographers to be interviewed while the footage is edited.

View the trailer for the documentary that Janek put together.

Look forward to future interviews and content for the documentary.

 
Picture Change book

A Picture Change book was published for the grand opening. The book contains each of the photographers participating in the exhibit. Accompanying the photographer and their biography is the featured photograph from their portfolio appearing in Picture Change, including a caption that tells the story behind the image and the change it invoked.

Currently, the Picture Change publication has a limited print run; PhotoSensitive hopes to make it available as a free ebook in the future. If you would like to purchase Picture Change, please contact Brynn Campbell at:

PhotoSensitive photographer Jo-Anne McArthur releases a new book.

Drawn from a thousand photos taken over 15 years, We Animals illustrates and investigates animals in the human environment: whether they're being used for food, fashion and entertainment, or research, or are being rescued to spend their remaining years in sanctuaries. Award-winning photojournalist and animal advocate Jo-Anne McArthur provides a valuable lesson about our treatment of animals, makes animal industries visible and accountable, and widens our circle of compassion to include all sentient beings.
